A Job Well Done

A Job Well Done

Sure, a job well done is its own reward, but a group photo at the end of the pier is also nice compensation.

Wednesday Evening Worship: Whoops.

Update: whoops, I must have gotten my wires crossed on the worship time. I’ll find out what the real time is actually going to be, but in the meantime I’ll leave the video up and streaming just in case anything awesome happens 🙂 Sorry!

Update #2: just found out that the worship service is outside tonight. It’s being videotaped so we should be able to post it later. My apologies.

Building Ramps, Changing Lives

Just received this e-mail from Ron Hayward, the supervisor at one of the work sites:

Brief introduction: my name is Ron Hayward, 73, and I have been a volunteer for LOVE, INC for about 8 years designing, making the drawings, BOM [Ed: Bill of Materials], etc. for handicap ramps. On occasion, I even help build them and have supervised 4 or 5 ramp jobs with Project Serve teams in the past.

This week I had the privilege of supervising a GREAT group of young people from Project Serve to build one.

Things didn’t start real good – early Monday morning there had been a thunderstorm that knocked out power in several locations around town – one of them being where we had to build the ramp.

Even though it was still raining lightly my helper & I got the crew started inventorying & re-piling the lumber & digging the necessary post holes (I have an allergy to anything that has a long, wooden handle – LOL),  while I went home for my generator. Progress went very well the rest of the day.

Tuesday went better – power was restored and we made excellent progress the rest of the day. (Except for the time the inspector was there – even that turned out better than it might have.) There was even some time that a couple of the team helped inside the home – washed some windows, etc. Linda, the group leader even made a run to the lumber yard to get some additional material. (I had made an error on the BOM.) The ramp was completed, the yard cleaned up, raked and looked as good as we could make it at day’s end.

This group of young people was one of the best I have ever worked with, honestly. Every one was willing to do whatever was ask – digging, carrying boards, measuring, driving screws, etc. Each of them did some of all the various tasks.

I hope all of them enjoyed the experience and learned something from it.

Kudos From Love INC

On behalf of our staff, board and volunteers, Love In the Name of Christ is extremely thankful for the work that the teams did to help our organization and our clients. The teams build two handicap ramps in Muskegon Heights which will allow these individuals freedom to come and go and participate in things we all take for granted. These persons had their ramps built because of Project Serve. We are also thankful for the help expanding our Food Bank. From this bank, we serve 16 area church food pantries and by expanding them, we can purchase more food through Feeding America that gleans food from many sources and sells to us for pennies on the dollar. This helps us help the poor in our community and keeps people from danger of hunger. Our thanks to these young people and their leaders for giving of their time, talent and energy to help in our community. God bless you all.
Gail Kraft, Executive Director, Love INC

Sticks, Slugs, and Sweat

Lots of all of the above when several groups tackled cleaning up various vacant lots. Fortunately the popsicles came with corny jokes and the kids brought their sense of humor.
